To me, it sounds as though Tony didn't have the balls for a real good go at promotion. Whether he doubted the players or his own abilities as a manager I don't know.
Maybe if TM had gotten himself a little excited, like Barry was, us fans might have had a glimmer of hope.
I want a manager who will bust a gut to get the men he wants in and do everything possible to pick up 3 points every game. TM is clearly not that man.
I wanna see a manager going ape shit on the touch line when our boys aren't doing the basics right, not just shaking his head, cutting a glum figure in the dug out.
It's time for a change in what I see as a possible last role of the dice to save our Club.
